PRESIDE1\T 



To Meredith College Students: 



This edition of the Oak Leaves furnishes abundant testi- 
mony to the fine fellowship and achievement that have 
characterized the current academic year. It is my earnest 
hope that through the years to come the recollection of these 
happy experiences will bring you increasing gratitude and 
adequate preparation for the greater privileges that should 
be yours. 

Cordially yours, 

CARLYLE CAMPBELL, 

President.

SHER SCHOOL 



THOUGH the student body of the Meredith College Summer Session is much smaller 
than that of the regular session, the varied a(ti\ities of the group are carried on no 
less enthusiastically. 

The Baptist Student Linioii held vesper service each Wednesday and "family 
altar"' services on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings. Under its sponsor- 
ship, the students of the summer session took as their special responsibility the Gary 
Street Mission, contributing generously of time and money in cleaning and renovating 
the mission house. 

The social life afforded opijortunities for frientlly association between faculty 
and students, as well as for mccling students from other colleges. One of the most 
successful parties was that gi\cn by ihe student councils of Meredith and iSorth 
Carolina State College. The Round Table Discussion Group met weekly to discuss 
current problems. The athletic activities included horseback riding, swimming, 
tennis, and golf. The college choir contributed to the life of the community by 
providing special music at the Sunday evening services held in the amphitheatre 
of the Raleigh Drama Center.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 
ASSOCIATION 



TO DEVELOP within each student the highest ideals 
for living, to encourage the successful and intelligent 
application of the principles of personal honor and 
unselfishness to individual and to community life, and 
to make Meredith a college where the spirit of Christian 
love and friendship is uppermost — these are the aims 
of our student government. 

The Student Government Association is composed of 
the entire Student Body, with its executive power vested 
in the Student Government Council made up of twenty- 
six student representatives, four of whom are elected 
from the nonresident students. Working with the Stu- 
dent Council are the Advisory Committee, consisting of 
the Dean of Women and two faculty members chosen 
by the Council, and the Faculty Committee on Student 
Government, consisting of the Academic Dean, the Dean 
of Women, and three faculty members elected by the 
facultv.

BAPTIST STUDENT 

UNION 

"III our Iwlls nj lenrning Christ you did iustill." 

AS THE WORDS of the B.S.U. song suggest, the real 
purpose of the Baptist Student Union is to make every 
phase of campus living Christian living. This purpose 
is carried out in the linking of the student to the local 
church through Sunday school classes and Training 
Unions, supplemented by vespers. Pause for Power, 
chapel programs, Y.W.A., planned recreation here on the 
campus and mission work in the city. 

Definite plans for the work of B.S.U. are made by an 
executive council consisting of general officers and repre- 
sentatives from the unit organization. Putting those 
plans into action is further aided by the Greater B.S.I . 
Council composed of all students holding offices in unit 
organizations and local churches. Each student having 
membership in a local church or in any unit organiza- 
tion is a member of B.S.I . 
"To the church we'll liind them. 

Show them life anew. 

With the strpnsth \ cm ;;i\n us. Spirit of B.S.U."

religion. Anything that affects human life is of interest to us.

m DEAR WATSON! 



Here's a problem for you, Watson. 
What living cost has DECREASED while 
nearly all other costs have gone right 
on rising? 

Are there any clues, Holmes? 

My dear Watson, the answer is at 
your fingertip. What else gives you 
three times as much for your money as 
It did 20 years ago'' What else is reedy 
day or night, winter or summer, to 
lighten your tasks and make life more 
comfortable for you? What else gives 
you so much service for just a few 
pennies a day?' What else, my dear 
Watson, but Electric Servicer' 

Yes, Holmes — but WHODUNIT? 

Elementary, my dear Watson. Electric 
service — dependable and cheap — is the 
result of hard work and experience on 
the part of the men and women of 
your electric company — under sound 
business management.
